The Moon and the Stars

A peaceful and atmospheric ambient drone focusing on just one note and its usually hidden harmonics.

The music comes from three sources, an ebowed guitar, a Roland SH-32 synth and Novation KS rack synth, each playing the same note.
The ebow picks out natural harmonics in the strings. The sounds used on the synths had a similar quality.
The three sounds layered together interact and bring out the harmonics of that note.
